A wonderful emerging artist!

I'm pleased to annouce that Kylie Lidgerwood, a local Ballarat artist, has some design with benefits coming her way! Kylie is pictured above on the left, standing in front of her work. I'm 'stuck in the middle' - between a fabulous artist and our wonderful web developer, Jill Clarke.

Kylie's submission to the Ballarat Greens emerging artist competition, 'Demolition on Swanston Street' took out the top prize. Her package inlcudes a branding and web development component from the Chagesmiths, artwork photography by Strobe Driver and professional development assistance from Red Brick Gallery. What a fabulous kickstart to a promising career :)

Thanks to Anne Saunders and Peter Widmer who accompanied me in the judging process. It's not something I'd want to do every day! Despite the three of us agreeing reasonably quickly on the top 5, there were so many quality submissions (over 40 works!). Ballarat and surrounding artists really did the event proud.

We can't wait to work with Kylie and develop a brand and online prescence for her work. Art is a critical to creating healthy and vibrant communities and we are super happy to be able to support the scene in Ballarat.
